Time to Start the Grind


Starting from scratch

By: Tizmouk @ 07:08 (EDT) / 335 / Comment ( 4 )

Okay i have decided to try to get back into poker, starting with $10.


I have played poker on and off for several years but have never had a great deal of success. I played a lot more live than i did online, and although i made a profit it was never enough to quit the day job. Now i want to come back to online poker, start from scratch and see what i can do. 

Being in a relationship and working as a chef, i find that my time is limited and therefore will not be able to spend hours and hours grinding away. But i will play as much as my time allows me to, and will update my progress on this blog as i go along. 

I am setting out with some strict rules, to make sure i have some kind of bankroll management. 


MTT = I must have 100 buy ins in order to enter, except for when i am below $10 where i can play any 10c tournament. 


SNG = These will count as sit and go with 10 players or less. I must have 50 buy ins to play. 


Cash = I must have 25 buy ins in order to play. so if i want to sit at 1c/2c table with $1 i must have at least $25 before i can play.


Now i intend to add money to my account on a weekly basis. This will be a small amount of $10, which will help me slowly rise through stakes and help with building the roll. I will do this every monday as i start my challenge as of today.

Now i guess i should get started!
